Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Anyone Familiar With This ' 69 Show ?

I came across this on the archive the other day and its real interesting and a bit of a revelation:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-08-03.sbd.miller.30652.sbeok.flacf

The Dead are joined by an un-named fiddle player and sax player. They play the jazziest Dark Star I've heard yet about 20 years before Branford ever set foot on stage with the Dead. I don't know if I like it yet but it sure is an interesting show.Does anyone know who the horn player and fiddle player are? It could be Papa John Creach on fiddle or maybe even Linda LaFlamme from It's A Beautiful Day. The only two names I could come up with. Sons Of Champlin members on horns possibly??
This is THE strangest show I've ever heard the Dead play! A fiddle on Alligator?? Horns on The Other One>Caution ?? WTF? Wonder what was in the punch that night...??

Appropriately for the morning after Thanksgiving, my soul is blossoming quite nicely under the dazzling light of this diamond in the rough. Thank you JWD. My soul has been seeking this show for aeons cos it craved just one good fix of electric violin in the GD mix. This is wonderful. It's party time and I've got a front row seat.

I'm listening to this thing again and its the most ridiculous and hilarious show I've ever heard the Grateful Dead play BAR NONE! If you don't believe it put on BIODTL,Hi Heeled Sneakers and Mama Tried. I'm in stitches here its so wierd! It sounds like the Salvation Army Band on white lightening and purple Owsley with Bjork playing backwards at the wrong speed in the background. THIS IS THE SET THE DEAD SHOULD HAVE PLAYED AT WOODSTOCK a couple weeks later friends and neighbors! In places it sounds like Mo Larry and Curly on fiddles in "Disorder In The Court". I think Jerry must have lost it at some point as Pigpen "handles" the vocals through most of Hi Heeled Sneakers after Jerry bails out on the "song". It tries to be serious in the Dark Star>Alligator>Other One>Caution>WBYG part but fails. But its funny in its own wierd way. I hope Charlie Miller reseeds this show again on one of the Torrent sites. I really want a copy of this! Seriously!

I've long been familiar with this show; probably just an accident I haven't recommended it here before. I always thought it was way cool. The Dead are clearly giving lots of jamming material to their guests....unfortunately the mix gets pretty bad towards the end just when they're freaking out. And it seemed to me, the fiddle player's not quite up to the challenge and stays in the background, and the sax player's a bit too eager for my taste.....but the fact that they're there at all makes this a standout '69 show. The night before was pretty forgettable in comparison; or at least, I've forgotten it.

as a massive Hot Tuna and Airplane fan ( though I don't listen to them like I used to ) I am allmost 100% certain that is not Papa John Creach on fiddle. Not only does it not sound like him but I never heard him play with Tuna or the Airplane until 1970 or after.It does sound very similar in style to the violen from It's a Beautiful day. Any way of finding out who else was on the bill?

Albert Collins and Ballet Afro-Haiti were on the show. I don't know anything about who Ballet Afro-Haiti is or was though.
Check out the feedback part after Caution where there are all these strange songs floating in and out of the feedback. The sax and fiddle are too much man! They play things like "Stars & Stripes Forever" and "Taps" and some old fiddle tunes and wierd sounding mountain fiddle reels and stuff while the band plays feedback before sliding into "We Bid You Goodnight". This is a really cosmic sounding set of music. Never heard anything that sounds quite like it. Fiddle, Sax and feedback. Almost like 2 shows overlapping on tape bleeding into each other. Plunderphonics in real-time.
